A group of councillors from a dozen Ontario municipalities is very disturbed at the rapidly increasing cost of electricity. They are questioning the government's energy policy that was rushed through without adequate analysis or examination, justified by an ideology rather than a comprehensive business case. They point out that our electricity has now become the most expensive in North America, seriously threatening our prosperity. And yet we are subsidizing New York and Michigan because we have to sell much of the wind energy which is available when it cannot be used, at below market prices and less than what it costs us to produce.

We have been bombarded daily these last few weeks with news, opinion pieces and letters-to-the-editor about the global warming, climate change, green energy colossus. Several times I was ready to write in reply, but new events invariably intervened. I could, however, not invent a script in which all the above are as effectively pushed aside as they were by the report which Auditor-General Bonnie Lysyc presented to the Legislature of Ontario on December 9th.

 

start-regEditor;

In the past, there has been much public sympathy for the plight of seniors. This has led to various financial support mechanisms that have greatly improved the senior's lot. Now, however, there is more of a move toward public sympathy for the plight of young people. However, assisting young people will require money (as it did and still does in assisting seniors). One obvious source of this required money is our more well off seniors who have been able to accumulate substantial assets, due in part to generous government assistance. Frankly, I am one of those well off seniors although I credit some of that to my abstemious lifestyle - eg never been on a "cruise"!)

harper-regEditor:

In February of 2013 Dean Beeby of the Canadian Press in an article said, "Canadians may be growing weary – even hostile to – all those Economic Action Plan ads the Harper government has been pumping out for the last four years." He also stated "eight polls the Finance Department commissioned between 2009 and 2012 suggest the TV, radio, print and internet ads are starting to fizzle – and annoy some people."

Wind0turbine-regEditor:

This is an open letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Health Minister Rona Ambrose.

The Multi-municipal Wind Turbine Working Group is comprised of elected municipal councillors and appointed citizens from parts of Southern Ontario where approximately 30 per cent of industrial wind turbines are concentrated. Over the past several years we have received a growing number of delegations from constituents whose health has been adversely affected by proximity to the wind turbines.
